Yes, that's totally not awkward /irony

Tsuzuki should take a trip to Cambodia to see how Cambodians are dealing with former Khmer Rouges. Because in my time there, it sure felt awkward for the former victims to have to live with those who have tortured them and killed their families back in the dictatorship.

This is actually the best design from Force Next imo. It's sober, simple, nothing over-the-top, not cringe worthy and not jarring.

Only Strike Cannon though. Fortress was stated to be controlled either Nanoha or Raising Heart, so when Nanoha concentrate on Strike Cannon it's RH that operates drone weaponry.

Ah the grass is greener on the other side. How I'd love to have 25-30 pages. (Claymore Chapter 113 discussion, spoilers inside)

Noticed something, only latest 2 chapters have 16 pages, and Huck II and Huck III. They are cut in half :/

Seriously? Oh god how I hate that name, it reminds me of the vilest and most cringeworthy fantasy creatures in literature (and motion picture)

Next thing you know, she'll sparkle *shudders*

Remember that the Hucks were apparently intended as technological vampires of sorts (viral transformation, bloodlust, need to kill to survive, etc.)... It's settled then: this officially marks the point where the franchise has jumped the killer whale.

Some new device trivia.

Sword Breaker works by using Subaru's vibration shatter ability.

Raising Heart's upgrade includes making her a 5th gen terminal just like Bardiche. (that wasn't in the force next)

Why didn't Hayate get an AEC device? Remember those poor staves she kept blowing up? Yeah, she's too powerful, they can't make a device that can handle it.

Ohhhhh. No wonder it's the only AEC that managed to do something actually usefull at the moment. It's powered by Subaru's own powers, cool xD. Still hope to be more love for Revolver Knuckle soon xD.

Karen sounds better, but *shrug* I got used to Kallen, I can get used to this.

Oh, come on.

Also, if you don't like Curren, then just call her Karen. Easy enough.

Yeah, but that's not a good thing. Fans have a bad habit of ignoring what they don't like or claim that a fandom preference is 'better.'

If Curren is the official spelling, then that means everyone should spell it that way. If they don't, they're just flat out wrong.

And sometimes official names just sound stupid compared to what fans first thought they were. Like that One Piece villain who was thought to be named Shiryu, which sounds pretty neat, but instead it's Shiliew, which is just weird.

Name spelling in Nanoha can get pretty wonky and inconsistent anyway, but considering the naming theme in Nanoha, I'm fine with her name being Curren. There's worse names for girls out there.

I know, but it's still the official spelling and is thus correct.

Where it gets complicated is when things have multiple official spellings. There's 3 different official localizations for Super Robot Wars, and not all the names are consistant across them.

But like RD said, with Nanoha's naming scheme it's easy to get the proper spellings by looking at the cars they're named after.
